Gladiolus Flower

Gladiolus Flower

The gladiolus flower grows on a long stalk and its name is derived from the Latin word “gladius,” which means “sword.” Here is a bit of the symbolism of this flower ~ that giving a bouquet of gladiolus flowers conveys the message of piercing the giver’s heart with passion. 🙂
